Construction Underway 
On Heacock Commons 

Construction on Heacock Commons is underway. 
The new college dining hall is expected to be finished by 
the start of the 1965 fall term. 

Robert D. Morrow, a general contractor from Salem, 
began construction on the 137-by-87-foot structure early 
last week. He offered the low-

be conducted by the represent- 
atives of the OYM boards for

four would have been accept- 

The replacement for the old 
"Quaker Inn" had originally 
been planned to be in use for 
the spring term, but several de- 
lays made this impossible. The 
first set of bids received by the 
Administrative Committee were 
all too high. This necessitated 
changes in the original plans in 
order to make the bids respon- 
sible. The new bids were open- 
ed on January 28 with Mor- 
row's bid of $296,000 being the 

Several significant changes 
were made in the plans. The 
basement was reduced in size. 
Now it will serve only as a 
food storage area. The freight 
elevator was replaced by a 
dumb waiter at the saving of 
$14,000. Another decision elim- 
inated for the present the off- 
campus student center. Other 
economic moves were made in 
the kitchen installations. 

The new Heacock Commons 
will show improvement over the 
old "Quaker Inn" in many 
ways. Besides increasing the 
actual dining area, it will show 
a vast improvement over the 
antiquated equipment In the 
present kitchen. The new din- 
ing area will feature twin cafe- 
teria-style service counters. 
One will be for hot foods while 
the other will be for cold foods. 

At the west end of the din- 
ing room will be a stage with 
four risers. This will be used 
for programs of various forms, 
and will also greatly facilitate 
chapels if it becomes necessary 
to hold them in the Commons 
next year. 

On the north side, behind the 
present Student Union Build- 
ing, will be a storage 'area and 
a small, seperate dining area 
which will be known as the 
"Cap and Gown". This area 
will serve as a faculty dining 
room and also for such occa- 
sions as club dinner meetings. 

There will be main sidewalks 
leading to the Commons from 
both Edwards and Pennington 
hall. Three major entrances 
will make the dining area di- 
rectly accessible from either 
hall or from the Student Union

Sago Firm to Manage 
Heacock Dining Facilities 

Saga Pood Services of Oregon will be taking charge 
of George Fox college dining facilities beginning the fall 
term of 1965. Dean of Administration Prank Cole says 
that the decision to switch to Saga came because of good 
response to Saga's services elsewhere and because of 

satisfactory financial arrange- 
ments, keeping costs at ap- 
proximately the same level. 

Saga, a nation-wide firm, 
provides managerial, purchas- 
ing, and serving direction. They 
wfil adopt college personnel, 
both staff and students, and 
will follow coUege policy in 
many matters. Wednesday eve- 
ning and Sunday noon meals 
will still be formal, "family 
style" dinners, with all others 
slated for cafeteria service. 

No change is envisioned for 
on-campus student cost rates. 
Proposed prices for individual 
meals are: breakfast — 60c; lunch 
— 80c; dinner — $1.10; steak din- 
ners— -$1.85. Saga custom pro- 
vides a Saturday evening steak 

meal with special menus on 
other occasions as well. 

The decision to switch to 
Saga was quickened because of 
the success of the program at 
nearby Friendsview Manor, 
Cole stated The firm will 
probably coordinate the two 
operations for added efficiency 
and service. Large-order pur- 
chasing power and know-how 
has helped keep Saga prices 

Saga services include: main- 
tenance of inventory (silver- 
ware and dishes will be under 
their Jurisdiction); service for 
student activities at arranged 
prices; insurance for student 
and staff employees.

YA Program Adds 
New Dimension 
To Service Term 

A new dimension has been 
added to the three-year-old 
Youth Ambassador program of 
Oregon Yearly Meeting of 
Friends Church. Formerly, am- 
bassadors served their assign- 
ed churches only during the 
summer months. The extended 

grogram recently authorized 
y OYM provides for full-time 
Youth Ambassador service as 

The new dimension, added to 
the existing programs of sum- 
mer and foreign ambassador- 
ship, will call for a longer per- 
iod of service up to one year. 
This may necessitate a break 
in the candidate's formal edu- 
cation. The plan is to send am- 
bassadors out two-by-two to 
work in churches, outposts, or 
areas where no church exists. 

The full-time program will 
be financed from two major 
sources. The candidates's home 
church, family, and friends will 
underwrite his support at ap- 
proximately $35 per month. 
Second, the church to which he 
goes will provide the cost of 
room and board. Insurance, etc. 

The extended term of service 
will call for a longer, more in- 
tensive training period prior to 
beginning to serve. The ses- 
sions will probably be held at 
the end of each school year. 

Youth Ambassador service in 
the past has been active in two 
areas. The summer program 
has involved college age young 
people working in assigned 
churches during' the summer 
months. This has meant living 
with some family of the meet- 
tog and securing employment 
as best they could with the 
church's help. They then de- 
vote their spare time to serv- 
ing the church in any ways 
needed — teaching, preaching, 
Bible school work, yard work, 

Foreign Youth Ambassador 
service was Initiated in the 
summer of 1964, when Chuck 
My lander spent two months in 
Guatemala, Bolivia and Peru as 
a representative of OYM 
Friends Youth. This coming 
summer Ron Stansell is to 
serve in a similar capacity. 

Those interested in any of 
the three aspects of the am- 
bassador program may secure 
applications, information fold- 
ers, and interest forms from 
either Dean Louthan's office or 
student body president Ron 

Dramatists Travel 
To NW Conference 

George Fox college drama de- 
partment sponsored a five-day 
trip for drama professor Mrs. 
Lova Wiley and three students, 
Gary Hinkle, Clark Adams, and 
Katrina Salo, to the Annual 
Northwest Drama Conference. 
The state college in San Jose, 
California hosted the confer- 
ence over the weekend of Feb- 
ruary 4-6. 

The conference drew, for the 
most part, drama professors 
and accomplished students in 
the field of drama. Each day 
of the conference was schedul- 
ed full of activities, including 
class sessions on the many as- 
pects of creativity in drama, 
luncheons with guest speakers, 
and a major play production 
each evening. 

In reviewing her experience, 
Katrina Salo commented. "The 
conference was an enriching 
experience and one which has 
renewed and encouraged my in- 
terest in the field of drama. It 
has pointed out the rewarding 
part drama could play in our 
age and that of the future, if 
we would promote and support 
its growth." 


Here We Stand 

A brief statement of the editorial policies un- 
der which this paper shall operate for the remain- 
der of the school year seems to be both called for 
and in order. 

The Crescent shall endeavor under its pres- 
ent staff to publish a student paper which is more 
than a re-hash of stale campus events. It shall pur- 
pose to be informative and accurate in presenta- 
tions of news, features, editorials, and student 

The staff envisions the purpose of this paper 
to be one of responsible Christian conscience. This 
conscience will not allow side-stepping or ignor- 
ing issues of common concern to the campus com- 

The editorial staff reserves the right to pre- 
sent its own point of view to the student body, 
with the understanding that equal priority will 
be given to all letters to the editor consistent with 
Christian standards. Controversy need not be 
negative or critical in spirit, but it shall not be 
fearfully avoided. The staff would point out the 
distinction between conservative Christian unity 
and complacent Christian conformity. 

The Crescent prayerfully purposes to pub- 
lish a newspaper which is consistently honoring 
in both letter and spirit to the Name of Jesus 
Christ. May the GFC student body purpose to 
live likewise.

A Farewell Offering 

By Gae Martin 

George Fox College is unique in its position 
as an educational institution as well as Christian 
institution. The potentialities of such a combina- 
tion is amazing. But the most unique thing of 
all about GFC its the students. Every single one 
of them has a vital role to play in making the col- 
lege what it is — every one! 

I am only grateful that I had an opportunity 
to play a role in making George Fox what it is. 
For all the complaining, griping, questioning, and 
suggesting , I like the school. I like what it stands 
for and what it can mean to the students who at- 

I/enjoyed my work as editor. Through the 
position the school became very close to me and 
I to it. And the closer I got the more intricate I 
found its workings to be. And the more import- 
ant I found the students to be. One only begins 
to appreciate the work of so many people when 
he holds such a position. 

I left George Fox with a full heart. The 
school has done much for me, and I hope I have 
contributed something to it. That seems to be 
the key to a good school— contribution. If the 
entire strident body were contributing, George 
Fox would wipe all other schools off the map. 

I am truly sorry to be writing this as my last 
contribution to The Crescent. Even as I write the 
issues and problems of the school weigh heavy 
in my heart. May I hear nothing but good reports 
coming from the college. For I pray it shall be 
filled with students who want nothing but the 
best for a school which is in the name of the

By Meredith Toungren 

Maintaining a social program that will meet 
the desires and needs of every student at George 
Fox college is the tremendous responsibility of 
the Social Committee and others planning social 
activities for any occasion. 

Many factors must be taken into considera- 
tion in planning any social activity here at G.F. 
The first consideration should be the purpose 
of the function. After the purpose has been 
clearly analyzed, the practical aspects such as 
available finances, location, performers, etc., 
must be worked out. To be taken into considera- 
tion should also be the value of any social ac- 
tivity to the individual person who attends. Are 
socials simply "passing time", or do they pro- 
vide a student with an opportunity to relax, to 
be himself, and perhaps even allow him to ex- 
press some creativity? 

Several students comment on the following 
BEST BE FULFILLED?" as follows: 

JAN LE SHANA — "G.F.C.'s purpose of a 
social life is one in which students may main- 
tain the highest standards of Christian conduct 
in a life other than academic and where students 
may develop social and' cultural awareness. The 
college seems to maintain a varied program of 
activities, ranging from clubs, cultural events, 
and sports in which students may choose ac- 
cording -to their own interests and needs. Wheth- 
er or not this purpose is fulfilled through our 
varied, but limited activities is yet to be seen. 
I feel if this purpose is to be fulfilled, the social 
program of G.F.C. should be expanded so as to 
accomodate the spare time of the students with 
a litUe better-planned program. For we want 
to prove that Christian youth on a small Chris- 
tian campus can enjoy life as much as non- 
Christian youth on bigger universities." 

JOHN MORRISON — "I think that the pur- 
pose of the social life on the G.F.C. campus is to 
promote Christian fellowship and to draw the 
campus as a whole into one large family. This 
can best be fulfilled by having good' parties, like 
we've been having, and find and use the people 
who feel that college should be a place for good, 
clean. Christian fun." 

PATH WOOD — "The purpose of social life 
on the G.F.C. campus could be summed up in 
two words, Christian fellowship. This fellowship 
gives us a chance to relax from studies and the 
hectic daily routine. It makes the atmosphere 
on campus more at home because by participat- 
ing in our campus social life we get to know

"The social program this year has included 
a variety of activities which have interested a 
good number of students but should interest more. 
Only by participating in G.F.C. social life can 
this bond' of Christian fellowship build up." 

JOANNE RHODES — "A great deal has 
been said lately about the religious and athletic 
aspects on the G.F.C. campus and now it is time 
to review the social life. Since my freshman year 
the social life has improved very much, mainly 
because the system of planning social functions 
has been improved. But as in most things, our 
social life can be even better. 

"The Social Committee has worked hard this 
past year in trying to provide good parties and 
formals but they cannot do everything. I'm a 
little tired of people who constantly gripe about 
the parties and of those who don't seem to be 
able to put forth any effort so that they can 
enjoy themselves Instead of really being con- 
cerned about giving constructive criticism and 
then consistently attending this social function. 
I realize that there are some people who do not 
enjoy large group parties, but that is their privi- 
lege not to come. However, when these same 
individuals turn around and moan, 'Why isn't 
there ever anything to do around here,' they 
have no one to blame but themselves. If we want 
better parties then we must support the func- 
tions that are provided and try to offer sugges- 
tions to the Social Committee so that they can 
work with the wishes of the TCABP (Those Con- 
cerned About Better Parties)." 

RON HARVEY — "A question concerning 
the importance of the social aspect of life is a 
difficult one for me to answer. I find it hard 
to compartmentalize life into mental, physical, 
social, or spiritual divisions. I believe that as 
Christ assumes a position on the throne of our 
lives these aspects take in a relatedness that 
produces a well-balanced Christian life. The so- 
cial aspect then becomes a spoke in a wheel 
which has Christ as its hub. Either to over or 
under emphasize this aspect produces imbalance." 

BRUCE LONGSTROTH — "My concept of 
the purpose of G.F.C. social life is: 

1) Enjoyment and relaxation 

2) Building friendships 

3) Developing social graces 

4) Promoting unity of the student body 
These can best be fulfilled, I feel, by having 

numerous informal gatherings, by participation 
as a group (Christmas Formal decorations), and 
by well-planned, organized functions. The key 
to all social life is variety, or distinctiveness, so 
that it will later reflect individual memories of 
some certain event." 

Craven, Mrs. Lauinger, Mrs. Arensmeler, Miss Oppenlander, and 
Dr. Martin revive student school spirit in chapei.

Pag© Three 

Sue, Shirley Join 

Crusaders OMi* $M c(lU M*»* 

Christmas vacation, 1964 
was crammed with adventure, 
new experiences, and shocks for 
junior Sue Hoffman and sopho- 
more Shirley Mewhinney. De- 
spite flood conditions and bad 
weather, they traveled from 
southern Idaho to Los Angeles, 
Calif, to join a 24-member cru- 
sade team traveling- to Mexico 
under the sponsorship of the 
Oriental Missionary Society. 

The purpose of this Crusade, 
which was under the direction 
of Bob Monroe of Portland, 
Ore, was to give each person a 
first-hand idea of missionary 
life and to witness to the Hex- 
lean people. 

The Mexico Crusaders left 
the Los Angeles OMS Head- 
quarters on December 28, ar- 
riving In Tijuana that after- 
noon. The three hours spent 
obtaining tourist cards at the 
border provided opportunity to 
visit the open market place and 
the large Catholic church. 

The Crusade team stayed in 
a motel in Ensenada during their 
three-day visit, using this as a 
base for all their activities. A 
trip south one day was one of 
the highlights of the entire vis- 
it. The group was accompanied 
by Federinco, a native pastor 
from Ensenada who served as 
their interpreter. The two girls 
especially remember a tavern 
meeting and a visit to a native 
Christian home on this trip. 

The other two days the Cru- 
saders spent most of their tune 
at the Chapingo Orphanage, 
where 48 children live under 
the care of one missionary 
couple. One day was spent as 
a workday, doing numerous 
jobs around the orphanage from 
sorting clothes from missionary 
barrels to washing little girls' 
hair and constructing a wash 

The following day was a 
"play-day" for the Crusaders. 
During the morning they had

their devotions on the beach 
and then visited the Ensenada 
Blowhole. The afternoon was 
invested playing with the or- 
phanage children, getting to 
know them better and giving 
them love and attention. 

The evenings were as full as 
the daytime. The first night 
the children gave their Christ- 
mas program for the Crusad- 
ers. Then the Crusaders were 
in charge of the service the 
next evening, giving them an 
opportunity to sing to the 
people in their language and 
to experience the thrill and 
frustration of testifying 
through an interpreter. Anoth- 
er evening yielded the novelty 
of bartering for souvenirs in 
the Mexican stores. 

Sue and Shirley report their 
first impressions of Mexico as 
•'dirt, fflth, reckless living 
(very evident in the Mexican 
driving), and a dire need for 
Jesus Christ." 

Shirley testifies, "When I 
first arrived among the Mexi- 
can people, I will admit I was 
almost afraid of them. True, 
we were here to see first-hand 
just how missionaries live, but 
we were also here to witness 
to the people. How could I tell

even talk to them? 

"It didn't take long to find 
out that I didn't have to be or 
do anything except love. The 
love of God will break all bar- 
riers.' This soon became the 
only important thing — to share 
the love of God with cold little 
children and worn tired adults. 
Never have the words 'Perfect 
love casteth out fear' meant so 
much. God only asks us to love 
and He will use us." 

Sue concludes, "We saw ex- 
treme poverty and deprivation 
everywhere. But even more ob- 
vious to us than the people's 
physical needs were their spirit- 
ual needs. Mexican people are 
warm and friendly, and very 
responsive to love. They are 
waiting for us to tell them that 
there is Someone' who cares 
about them, Someone who will 
love them eternally and give 
them a home in heaven. 

"Luke 12:48 says, 'When a 
man has been given much, 
much will be expected of him.' 
We have been given many edu- 
cational and cultural opportun- 
ities — and we have been given

To the Editor: 

As I sit here in the library 
reading the Feb. 1, 1965 issue 
of the Crescent, I am getting 
a little upset. The overwhelm- 
ing theme throughout the paper 
seems to be that GFC is a 
naughty little Christian school. 
In four major areas of the 
paper (editorial, Other Side of 
Moon, Gathering Campus Opin- 
ion, and Sittin' with Britton) 
the "fact" is brought out that 
good ol' GF has lost all her 
Christian standards, and that 
all but a few faithful ones are 
rotten apples in the barrel and 
progress should be limited. 

Granted, we need revival, and 
to stop "griping about trivial- 
ities," but at the same time we 
cannot run down our strongest 
asset, being that we are In 
don't know about anyone else, 
but I feel that I belong to an 
outstanding Christian student 
body. Not all students have a 
vital Christian experience, but 
why portray these as the typi- 
cal GF"er. 

If the paper were larger (I 
hope you print this), I would 
list some of the "non-Christian" 
professional organizations that 
the school belongs to already. 
Why should the joining of the 
Oregon Collegiate Conference 
drag us into the depths of in- 
iquity? If one would look at 
the screening process that new 
students go through, it is ob- 
vious that we can't be cleaning 
the gutter to find athletes to 
strengthen our athletic depart- 
ment. Our grant-in-aid program 
is almost nothing compared to 
most members of the OCC. The 
implication that no other OCC 
school has athletic scholarships 
is completely erroneous. One 
school has cut out scholarships, 
but the others are going "full 
speed ahead" in their scholar- 
ship and recruiting programs. I 
am for progress, and joining 
the OCC is one step in the right 

Why can't we ever mention 
the strong points of George 
Fox ? We do have an outstand- 
ing Christian student body; 
we do have a beautiful campus; 
we do have a fine extracurricu- 
lar program (drama, student 
government, athletics, etc.) ; we 
do have a dedicated faculty and 
staff; we do have increased 
school spirit; we do have an 
alumni that is pulling for us, 
along with many more bless- 
ings that the good Lord gives 
us collectively and individually 
each day. 

Can't anyone ever look on 
the good side of life? — there is 
one, you know. 

Hoping to be heard,

To the Editor: 

I am one who usually re- 
mains silent when it comes to 
saying what I think or stating 
an opinion. I keep silent in 
hopes that someone who agrees 
with me will do my job for me. 
This attitude is common among 
many people on our campus, 
and in our nation as far as 
that is concerned. 

I think that GFC being a 
member of the OCC league is a 
great break-through on behalf 
of our athletic department. 
This opportunity hasn't been 
gotton over night. It has taken 
many hours on behalf of our 
athletic personnel to make this 
possible. For whom was this 
done? For themselves? No, 
I'm afraid not. For the play- 
ers? No! For George Fox col- 
lege! That's right! Not only 
will it bring in more and bet- 
ter students, but it shows the 
state schools and other secular 
schools that Christians can 
participate in sports in a good 
dean Christian manner. The 
Christians on campus should 
take this as a challenge, and a 
new area to witness. 

I think that some of these 
people who are opposed to this 
step are out of place. They are 
yelling "Fire" after the build- 
ing is burned down. 

Why didn't they speak up 
sooner when their protests 
might have done them some 

As far as I am concerned, 
George Fox should be proud of 
the fact that we were accepted. 
True, we are smaller than most 
of the schools in the league, but 
they must have thought we 
were competition or they 
wouldn't have even considered 
us. After all, it is not neces- 
sary for us to win all our games 
(we never have!). It is only 
necessary that we have "fought 
a good fight," as Paul puts it 
to us, and left a record of good 
sportsmanship and fair play 
behind us. 

Sincerely yours, 
Dave Peck 

To the Editor: 

What is to follow is not writ- 
ten about most of the students 
of GFC, but it concerns every- 
one. Normally I can read the 
Crescent without becoming 
aroused, but this last issue 
stirred me up. It all centers 
around the recent entrance into 
the OCC. Instead of viewing 
this as progress and a chance 
to extend to the world a wit- 
ness of our Christian stand- 
ards and beliefs, there has been 
a surprising amount of nega- 
tive attitude shown. 

Aren't we happy to move 
ahead in the world? We as 
Christians cannot enclose our- 
selves in our own little worlds 
and pretend that we are in 
heaven. To reach the world we 
must live in the world. This 
is not to say that we should 
be worldly; indeed not, we 
should be in the world yet not 
of the world. The missionary 
does not save souls from a com- 
fortable office in his church in 
America somewhere. Instead 
he goes out in the field and 
lives with and like the people 
he Is trying to save. Let's quit 
trying to withdraw from the 
world. Let's live in the world 
and let the world know we are 
not of the world. Let them 
know that we have something 
they need. 

Being in the OCC puts us in 
the world. Our failures, reac- 
tions, standards, but most of 
all our successes will show the 
world that we as Christians 
are better. Let's all unite and 
work for success. Let's commit 
ourselves to success to help us 
to reach the world and be a 
testimony to Christ. Don't be 
negative, be positive. Don't say 
we don't, we can't, and we 
haven't; say we do, we can, and 
we have; and together we shall 
succeed. Let's unite, support 
the administration in whatever 
they chose to do, and present 
a unified front to the world. 

For a better GFC in Christ, 

Bob Craven

Hats off to Coach Charlene Craven and her 
tremendous team composed of Mrs. Lauinger, 
Mrs. Angelelo, Mrs. Arensmeier, Dr. Martin, and 
Miss Oppenlander. A rose to each one for a great 
skit and a wonderful display of school spirit. Some 
students enjoyed the performance so much they've 
suggested that the men of the faculty have charge

I have been informed that in the last issue 
no mention was made that Edwards III girls were 
also leading in volleyball. Your gracious pardon 
is requested, girls. I promise to try a little harder 

in the future.

Latest word on baseball: Baseball will be 
held this spring if enough fellows are interested 
in playing. The space and materials will be pro- 
vided for an infield if the players will provide the 
work. If not enough volunteers show, baseball 
will be off. Anyone planning on playing should 
contact Roy McConaughey, Fred: Gregory, or 
yours truly. 

Prospective players have voiced a great deal 
of displeasure oyer the previous decision to can- 
cel baseball. This is our chance to show whether 

or not we really want to play.

Congrats to the girls' basketball team for 
their 79-25 victory against Pacific U. Looks like 
a good year for girls' sports. An undefeated vol- 
leyball season and such a lopsided victory against 
what was figured to be a tough team. Good luck 

and keep up the good work.

Two Victories, One Loss 

The George Fox Quakers took on three foes within 
the four days from January 29 ■ February 1, with the 
graduated curve depicting their victories resembling an 
inverted camel's hump. 

Friday Night Comeback 
On Friday night it took a last-quarter splurge to 
put the Quakers on top of Con 

cordis Christian college. With 
ten minutes remaining in the 
game, the score was knotted at 
63-63. The Quakers finally pull- 
ed the plug and posted a 101-83 

Dale Twenge led the local five 
with 28 points and Ron Heide 
scored 26. Ron also pulled in 
16 rebounds. Rick Schmidke 
was high for the losers with 
25 swlshers, and teammates 
Terry Visser and Bill Berner 
both collected 17 counters. 
Rivals Grab Victory 

Saturday night Cascade came 
to town and grabbed the vic- 
tory. With the Quakers hitting 
a cold 23 per cent from the 
floor and committing 15 ball- 
handling errors, Cascade's 51 
per cent shooting average piled 
up a 48-27 half-time lead. In 
the second half the Quakers 
outscored Cascade 34-28, while 
GF shooting improved to 40 
per cent, but were unable to 
overtake the Cardinals and re- 
mained on the bottom of the 
heap at 76-61. 

In the second half Cascade 
shooting fell to 24 per cent.
